I'm not doubting that people will run to help, but we should inform people to step back and wait till the area is* secure.

Back on the miranda rights. Should he be tried as a enemy combatant?

The first rule is always 'do no harm', to others or yourself.  Yet, when a situation happens where people are in a fire, bad accident or the boston bombing, sometimes people move into action regardless of their own safety.  It might seem foolish, or easy to comment on a forum when none here can say, 'I was there so they were stupid', but I find it remarkable and I am in awe of those that do in these situations.  I bet the families of those helped would differ with you.

Maybe it's because I grew up in South Africa in the 80's but I'm perfectly aware of the risk involved.

That would not stop me helping. A risk is just that, it is not definite.

Everything you do, including swallowing food, is risky. Accept it and drive on. If everyone is afraid to enter a dangerous situation you'll never get any emergency service.

Many people have what psychologist would call altruism. We have an innate want to help others. These people just acted upon it because it is instinct and the people that got the help will be forever grateful.

They are not enemy combatants as we are not in a state of war or armed conflict with their parent country.  So, no, they should not be treated as "enemy combatants".  It would be more appropriate to charge/treat them as a-holes.

I'd rather see him convicted as an American and then put into general population.

Don't tell the rednecks on Facebook this.

And yeah, general population sounds like a plan to me.
